for substantial amounts of military aid. the u.s. has only provided nonlethal support so far and there are been reports the gulf states are loyal to the sunni majority in that rebel movement, maybe supplying arms. but i think if you ask most rebels now, they see the curve on their side, see themselves seizing weapons, caches, at quite a substantial rate, downing aircraft, too. and i think if the u.s. went and said, okay, we want to help you out, that may get a fairly chilled response from much of the rebel movement and certainly i think they may recognize this is programs a late in the game stage to try and be able to influence the outcome of this civil war, rather than to actually assist the rebels in winning. ashleigh? >> nick, just before my next question, a little bit of breaking news i want to get to our viewers. we're getting reports the road to the damascus international airport has been shut down because of clashes and military operations on the outskirts of the airport and on the outskirts of that major city. i'm also hearing that cell phone outages and the internet has been now blocke
